The size and color of your envelopes are of course customizable.

Everest is simple to construct and completely functional both for close up or stage performances. Everest serves as a wonderful and less expensive alternative to your standard peek wallet or window envelope.

I was looking for a convincing envelope peek that would give me a full billet peek in the most natural way possible. Dark Arts wasn’t for me. I thought the writing on the envelope made it seem a bit off. Methods with stacks of envelopes also seem off. That’s not how you would handle the replacement if you didn’t have to. I strive for my chosen methods to look congruent with how I would handle the props if I was handling them normally. This passes that test.

I’m not the most well-read magician or mentalist, but I have read a decent amount of material, and I have never come across an envelope like this. Yes, you have to make it up yourself, but it isn’t very hard. The instructions are not super clear, so you’ll need to look at the template, print and cut the pieces, and then watch the accompanying video - pausing along the way - to figure out exactly what needs to go where. This is a new creator, and one area for improvement in his future releases could be to focus on clarity and descriptive specificity.

But... they critique aside, this is awesome, and exactly what I was looking for. The best surprise was that this does not have to be made with black paper/card stock. You can use any color. So I’m making up my own with heavy craft paper. The only minor downside is that these envelopes are not super examinable. They will pass visible scrutiny, and, with one small addition to the construction, you can let the spectator lightly handle them, but the spectator should not place the card into the envelope on their own or be given an opportunity to scrutinize the envelope. If your routine fits those parameters, this is a really strong method with a natural handling.

The bonus peek/switch is also pretty darn good too! I don’t use wallet peeks myself, but it’s clever and I could see it’s application to a variety of uses.

Its Ok but Report this review

Video looks like it was done in his car..its ok but nothing special.

Gimmick works OK but if you want to make one a different size then you have to figure out the dimensions and make your own template since it is a PDF and you cant adjust easily adjust the template to a different size.

All in all given the quality of the video and the fact that it is not easy to make different size gimmicks I would not buy again at this price

Could Be Better Report this review

First of all it implies that it is a video download...
well sort of..there is a PDF file you download that gives you some information and a template for making the gimmick..there is a link to video that looks like most of it was done inside his car but you can not save it to your machine.

It is sized for small billets or a business card..so just be aware of the size since I think you might have to make your own template. It can be done but its not THAT simple and takes some time..

The portion that shows how to make the gimmick is not very good, parts of it are speeded up and skip over some details that would be useful to see..and there really isn't any explanation just the video of his hands (that sometimes go off camera) making the gimmick.

The handling tips provided are useful..

All in all I would say save your money on this one...

Clever gimmick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 15th, 2018
Clever gimmick, allowing for an easy peek of secret information.
If the manufacturing is not really difficult, it will require a couple of trials to get everything perfect (thickness of construction paper will have to be factored in to get a perfect result). It remains more complex to build than other w** envelopes and will not be built on the spur of the moment (hence the loss of a star in the rating).
Handling wise, the move is a little bit angle-sensitive (think Acidus Novus). In a one-on-one situation, the effect is outstanding.
All in all, a great addition to the arsenal of the mentalist who likes to use envelopes and billets. Perfect for a single Q&A reading, medium-style.
